Gazdic was placed on waivers Wednesday by the Oilers. Gazdic is only on the team for his physical presence and with the Oilers in need of roster spots he was an easy choice to be placed on waivers. If he clears he will be assigned to Bakersfield of the AHL.
Gazdic netted his first goal of the season in Sunday's win over the Sabres. It was also Gazdic's first point of any kind this season, though he missed a week dealing with an illness. The fourth line winger has just eight total points in his career, so he's likely not on any owner's radar regardless of format.
Gazdic (illness) was activated off injured reserve Monday. Gazdic missed just the minimum one week after coming down with an illness and looks set to draw back into the lineup for Monday's contest against the Capitals. The club has yet to announce a corresponding roster move, but one will likely come before the start of Monday's tilt to clear the way for Gazdic to return.
Gazdic (illness) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday. Gazdic was placed on injured reserve to open up a roster spot for Lauri Korpikoski, who will return to the Oilers' lineup Wednesday against Chicago after missing the team's last eight games with a head injury. Gazdic will be eligible to draw back into Edmonton's lineup Monday against the Capitals, but could be sent down to the AHL once healthy.
Gazdic was held out of practice Monday with an illness, Jason Gregor of TSN 1260 reports. An illness appears to be plaguing multiple Oilers, though the extent of Gazdic's ailment is unclear at this point. The club has some time off before it's next contest, but the winger is day-to-day ahead of Wednesday's tilt against the Blackhawks.
